Google Affiliated Orkut on MS .NET

Saturday, July 15, 2006

By now, you all must have been addicted to Orkut, an online community running in affiliation with Google. Orkut got its name from its owner Orkut Buyukkokten, a doctrate student at the Stanford University.

Orkut is developed on the Microsoft .NET platform. Its really amazing to see Google affiliating a service build on its die-hard competitor, Microsoft's platform. The choice of .NET platform is obvious because of the features the framework provides to ease the development of web applications and services.

The two companies, Google and Microsoft, are each others major rivals. Microsoft wants a pie of the Google's internet advertisement revenue, while Google wants to end the monopoly of its Internet Explorer regime. Google using .NET technologies seems surprising, giving Microsoft a reason to smile.

That goes on to show why exactly Orkut gets a "Bad Server, No Doughnut for you" error so frequently.....

Its not the server thatz problamatic... its the MS running on it thatz problamatic.

Why am I posting content onto Blogs, twittering, when no one is visiting anyway? I'm not reading my other 1000 followers tweets, so I am sure they are not reading mine! If I'm the only one ready what I'm writing I'd sooner not bother! 2 Blog posts a day, why? for what? What am I going to say? What difference will it make? dig this

Internet Marketing has the ability to transform businesses, enable small companies to compete with the 'big boys' and build new enterprises from nothing but not by making one blog post a week, the odd twitter tweet now and then and complaining that sales haven't increased yet! Leadgeneratie

The marketers here have made a fatal mistake: they got too absorbed with exploiting the needs of the customer rather than connecting to these needs. Webdesign
